Prairie Falcons today too

By taking the nice open grassland oute between lakes today, I saw a lot of raptors. In addition to the Golden Eagles I also saw several Prairie Falcons including the one in these pics. The distinctive dark axillaries, the base of the underwing or what's referred to as armpits, and wing coverts are one of the best field marks for Prairie Falcons. The dark mustache seen on most falcon species can be seen in the lower pic. SeEtta
